As we reported in Q1, Dykema had several transactions carried over from 2021 where “the urgency to close” appeared to have died down after it became conventional wisdom in the transactions community that tax laws do not shouldn’t change any time soon (that remains to be seen). It is therefore not surprising that the volume of our transactions in the second quarter slowed down from the blistering pace of the first quarter. That said, our M&A volume in the second quarter remained quite high by historical standards, with 17 deals closed, bringing our total to 41 year-to-date. equipment, non-profit management, employment services, children’s education and technology. The size of transactions during the second quarter averaged nearly $32,000,000.

In the coming weeks, you should receive our 18th annual M&A Outlook Survey, in which we collect data from you regarding your assessment of the current deal market and your expectations for next year. We look forward to hearing from you and hearing your observations and expectations for the future. A link to last year’s survey results can be found here.

The content of this article is intended to provide a general guide on the subject. Specialist advice should be sought regarding your particular situation.
